Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez to have offseason surgery

Gary Sanchez

Well, we might have finally received an explanation for his struggles.

Catcher Gary Sanchez will have surgery on his left shoulder in the next week, which could slow him during spring training but is not likely to keep him out of the lineup on opening day. He says it has been bothering him since 2017. Sanchez has had issues with his non-throwing shoulder since 2017 and he has been receiving cortisone shots to treat the injury. Cashman confirmed that the recovery time following Sanchez operation is roughly three months, so he is expected to be available on opening day. This offensive potential will give Sanchez plenty of chances to prove himself once again during the 2019 season.

Through 77 games in 2018, Romine put together a career high 42 runs batted in alongside a career high 22 extra base hits.

Having a healthy shoulder will no doubt help that.

Barnes said: "we recognise that in the United Kingdom there are still concerns around auditor independence". Deloitte has shared its response to the CMA's investigation, including its own set of remedy proposals.

And they should trust Austin Romine, who gave them a stellar performance a year ago while Gary Sanchez spent some time on the shelf with various injuries. Before fans start chanting to trade for J.T. Realmuto, take a look at what Brian Cashman has to say about that.

Coincidentally, the Yankees did add a new backstop to the depth chart on Thursday, inking Ryan Lavarnway to a minor-league deal.

Cashman made the announcement at the general managers' meetings, hours after the Yankees finalized an $8 million, one-year contract with CC Sabathia.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery for the catcher. That will be back in full force when he returns.
